TRIPARTITE COLLABORATION TO BOOST PALLIATIVE CARE RESEARCH & EDUCATION: NEW CENTRE TO DEVELOP CAPABILITIES TO INTEGRATE PALLIATIVE CARE INTO HEALTHCARE SPECTRUM
To bolster capability and capacity to support end-of-life care in Singapore, the, National Healthcare Group (NHG) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Dover Park Hospice (DPH) will be signing a Memorandum of Understanding to form The Palliative Care Centre for Excellence in Research and Education (PalC). Leveraging on the strengths and resources of member institutions, namely Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), NTU’s medical school the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) and DPH, the tripartite collaboration builds on existing partnerships1 and will combine clinical expertise with academic and research excellence, to produce practical applications within the community.
A key focus would be the development of more effective prognostic tools for non-cancer patients at the end-of-life, such as those suffering from end-stage organ failure (ESOF). With Singapore’s growing chronic disease burden, the prevalence of end organ disease is expected to rise. In 2015 alone, ESOF accounted for about 33 per cent of 5,368 deaths3 within the NHG patient pool. That same year, ESOF accounted for 43 per cent of deaths in patients above 60 at TTSH.
